Herbed Cheese Spread

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"Tastes just like the expensive Boursin® cheese spread you buy at the store. Reduced-fat cream cheese works well in this recipe. Delicious spread on crackers or as a fill on celery sticks. Good shelf life in the refrigerator. This can be eaten right way, but it's best if refrigerated for at least one day before serving."

Had no vermouth, so used heavy whipping cream. Two cloves of garlic may be too strong. May cut back to one clove next time. I ground the dry herbs with the salt before adding them to make the p...
